Re: Spnego Authentication on Windows Machine

@ASIF Khan Yes, this is possible. You need to configure a browser that supports SPNEGO like firefox, ie or chrome. The configuration steps on how to do this can be found on internet.

Here is a link to the documentation that cover some of the configuration steps:

Also you need to make sure windows machine has acquired a kerberos ticket. This can be done by installing and configuring the kerberos client.

Finally, another option is to install Knox and avoid kerberos configuration for remote clients.
